Subject: It's a nice commercial, But...
....It's a shame it's in such poor condition. The print has faded, It's worn, And the sound is poor. I honestly hope this commercial can be restored, because at this rate it will be gone in 10 years.

Subject: Dated
Stylized 1957 commerical for RCA VICTOR records. You never get to hear any samples. It Rests on the performer's personality. Soundtrack a little garbled. Color faded.

This ad reminds me of some of the records that I used to find when I would search through my family's music collections.

And what's with the bitterness on these boards lately? Can't anyone just lighten up and enjoy themselves?

Subject: Great Line up from the "House of Nipper"
Well, let's see you try to buy a Perry Como CD of this same 1957 album for less than $3.98 from any audio store. Can't complain about the prices back then (1957) with the price of homes batting around $12,000 new, wages of .85 cents/hour to begin with, salaries of $7K/yr was "making the dough" for middle class America, and we won't even begin with the price for a gallon of gasoline (any grade) of a incredible price of .21/gallon. All the artists that were listed on these album covers were hard working artists who knew how to express their talents in a very appreciable way-not being obnoxious like the junk (rap crap, hate music, that we have now.

Subject: Woo! Perry Como for 3.98!
A commercial with no sound for RCA victor's summer line up of records.. You could choose from Lena Horne, Harry Belafonte, or yes, Perry Como himself. Didn't know there was a song called "We get letters..." thought that was just a David Letterman/Paul Schaefer creation...
